Opel will come up with a new studio within two years. The electric SUV is not just a shot in the dark. Opel has to define its DNA under the wings of the French PSA Group as never before.
Compact SUV is based on
simple and harmonious lines. See it on the front mask
covered by a common glass under which the light from Opel is burning, but
all necessary sensors and complete lighting technology.
Although Opel has a 50-year tradition with studio & # 39; s, of course
the latest, such as the Opel GT Concept (2016) and Monza (2013), are on
production lines have not conquered much. The lossy car had a lot different
worry about bringing the sporty coupé to the world or the comfortable Grand Turismo.
However, the latest experimental concept of GTX has a lot to do with reality.
Opel is looking for a new face. And in connection with the passage under the wings
the French PSA group, whose technology it will use in the future, will also be
more needed than ever before. According to Pace's revitalization plan
Opel must stay behind.
What does that mean? Designers see the DNA in German, Accessibility and
emotionality. That is also how GT X Experimental should be. At the time of the crosover tree
it is not surprising that the carrier of the new Opel identity is an electric crossover.
And it is very compact. It has a length of only 4,063, a width of 1,830 and one
height 1 528 mm. However, the shaft wheel of 2 625 mm also passes the series
Crossland X. The concept is based on purity lines. Opel says it
& Quot; visual detoxification & quot; The central theme of the front mask is the so-called
"Opel Compas". The vertical line is met in the lightning bolt log
indicated by the longitudinal edge of the bonnet and the horizontal formed by the graphical representation
The research has a length of only 4
063 mm, but also the current Opel SUV is the 2.625 mm wheelbase
Crossleand X. The interesting element is the yellow line that divides the body
two differently painted parts. Author: Opel
The entire face of the front mask is covered with dark glass that integrates
not only the logo, but also all necessary sensors and adaptive diode lamps
Matrix Led. This "Opel Vizor" mask should have all new models
tags. The purity of forms is also apparent from the profile. Harmonic lines
do not disturb the rearview mirrors or the doorknobs. The more yellow it is
a line overlaps the connections between the bonnet and the mudguards and also between the roof and one
frameless windows. At the same time the lower part of the body was painted
light gray and the upper one in the dark blue night blue. How to go further
concept passes the windshield almost uninterrupted over the entire length
roofing and access to the interior facilitate the absence of a central pillar.
Open doors in an angle of up to 90 degrees clockwise.
The interior is minimalistic.
The seats float in the air and most controls have been replaced

The rear view repeats the theme of the Opel Vizor forehead, including images
lights. And because it is a compact SUV, it does not even have solid plastic
chassis protection, more headroom or aggressive operation
17-inch wheels. Their grip is the rubber protection of the discs it creates
sense of off-road tires. Imaginative details are a small display
in a robust threshold for the rear left mudguard, which shows the level
charging the batteries. Unfortunately, Opel has revealed nothing. We only know it
that the studio is equipped with new generation li-ion accumulators
can also be inductively induced. However, their capacity is also a secret
such as whether GT X Experimental drives one or both axles.
To the SUV world, GT X Experimental
reports a massive plastic protection from the raised chassis and 17-inch
Wheels with rubber disc protectors. Author: Opel
Even the interior is based on minimalism. All controls are
united in a wide instrument panel that forms monoliths
a whole, similar to the Opel Vizor front mask. There are even two integrated ones
displays that replace the rear-view mirrors. The same pattern repeats the steering wheel
with an unusual thin wind. The visual brightness does not interfere with the speakers.
They are integrated into the head restraints of the chair. As if they were floating over it
floor. The feeling of space is enhanced by the flow of light from the panoramic roof.
Do not doubt the need for assistance systems, such as GT X
The experiment contains elements of autonomous control at SAE 3 level, which means
partly autonomous, still under the control of the driver.
And what is the future of the concept? If you lose the tricks of the show car,
it can be led directly to the production lines. Fits perfectly with the future
Opels plans to make SUV & # 39; s and crossovers up to 40% in 2021,
his production and by 2024 at least one model in each model line
electrified version. But live the GT X Experimental concept closest to you
we will not see time. Opel is one of the car manufacturers that have canceled them
his participation in the upcoming Paris Motor Show in Paris. Some
there will be no participation in Geneva next year.
